Unfortunately.. it is necessary. Parasites are absolutely everywhere, and they’re often microscopic so you don’t even see them, but they can still wreak havoc in the body. Parasites are most common in the intestines but can travel to other organs as well, the next most common occurrence is liver flukes.
Fortunately..there are plenty of natural ways to get rid of most types of parasites. Some of the more serious infections are best dealt with through pharmaceutical antiparasitic medication, but the vast majority of the parasites you encounter can be removed with herbal protocols.
Because they’re often microscopic, you won’t see them, but they can be found in contaminated food and water, unwashed fruits or veggies, undercooked meat or fish, unfiltered ice, or water.
Pinworms are really common in preschool-age children. Also known as enterobiasis, this is the most common helminth infestation in the United States, with an estimated 42 million infested Americans, translating to 14% of the population.
Another way of contracting a parasite, more common on tropical beaches, is from walking barefoot on the sand.
Another key fact when it comes to parasites is that they are relatively easy to pass around, so they’re easily transmitted through entire families. This is why most practitioners recommend treating an entire family when any one member is found to have parasites.
Dr. Jay Davidson (hyperlink the name to this: https://drjaydavidson.com/tag/parasites/) said the way to test for parasites is to take your fingers and place them on your pulse. If you have a pulse, you have parasites.
1. PERSISTENT IRON DEFICIENCY ANEMIA
2. SKIN IRRITATION
flare-ups most commonly occur on the inner thigh and upper neck
3. TEETH GRINDING
4. ITCHY BUM
due to the toxins impacting the join areas
6. FEELINGS OF APATHY, DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, FATIGUE AND BRAIN FOG
this is because parasites steal nutrients and release toxins in exchange!
animal studies have also proven that parasites have the ability to change the mental status of the host
7. NEVER FEELING FULL
parasites steal the nutrients so the body thinks you need more food
8. WORSENING SYMPTOMS AROUND THE FULL MOON
this is because parasites flare up around the full moon
9. IBS SYMPTOMS
due to their damaging impact on the GI tract
10. TRAVEL ABROAD AND GOT "FOOD POISONING" OR "TRAVELERS DIARRHEA"
this is often a case of parasites that hitched a ride on your food!
11. "NEVER THE SAME" AFTER FOOD POISONING
There are several different types of parasites. There’s protozoa, tapeworms, roundworms, and each classification has several sub-classifications under it. For example, Giardia is a protozoa and Trichinella is a roundworm.
1. Antiparasitic pharmaceuticals – these are effective but often have some pretty strong side effects. Some examples are: metronidazole, praziquantel and ivermectin.
2. Antiparasitic herbs – these generally need to be taken together in a blend and for longer than with the pharmaceuticals, but usually have fewer side effects. Some examples are: wormwood, black walnut hull, holy basil, clove, and neem.
What does this mean? It means making sure all of your detoxification pathways are open before you begin killing something that will give off toxins…because if your pathways aren’t open when you kill parasites, guess where those toxins go? They stay in your body and circulate around, causing damage everywhere they go!
If you make sure that your lymph is flowing, your bowels are moving, your kidneys and liver are supported; however, you’ll be in great shape when you actually start killing the parasites.
I designed a course to walk you through killing parasites step by step and I highly recommend you take this quick and easy course. It’s only $45 and can be fully completed in under an hour.
By the end of the course you’ll know how to:
If you’ve successfully killed off parasites, using my course or some other method…how do you make sure you don’t get them back right away?!
Minimize your exposure by doing things like washing fruits and vegetables thoroughly prior to eating them, avoiding pork, cooking meat and seafood well (no more sushi – sorry!).
Fix your FOUNDATION for health so your immune system and healthy microbes can kill parasites for you to keep them from taking hold should a few slip by your fruit washing or should you wander back to that sushi! Parasites can more easily take hold when people are run down, so laying the foundation for health is one of the best things you can do to ensure they don’t come back.
Repeat the parasite cleanse on a yearly basis at least. Simply make it part of your routine. Every year at the end of summer, for example, you could do a month-long parasite cleanse to make sure nothing has slipped through the immune system’s patrol!
